Endless Steppe, The: Growing Up in Siberia

by Esther Hautzig


Quick Overview

A young Polish girl, her mother, and her grandmother, taken prisoners by the Russians during World War II and shipped to a forced-labor camp in a remote, impoverished Siberian village, somehow manage to stay together and alive through near starvation and harsh arctic winters.


In the bitter desolation of Siberia, Esther and her family fight to stay alive. It is June 1941. The Rudomin family has been arrested by the Russians. They are "capitalists--enemies of the people." Forced from their home and friends in Vilna, Poland, they are herded into crowded cattle cars. Their destination: the endless steppe of Siberia. For five years, Esther and her family live in exile, weeding potato fields and working in the mines, struggling for enough food and clothing to stay alive. Only the strength of family sustains them and gives them hope for the future. Size 0.59" H x 7.06" L x 4.26" W, 256 pages
